How to Remember Equations and Models (Maths/Physics)

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” This phrase is often (mis)attributed to Einstein and is eerily apt for IB revision. Despite its suspected apocryphal nature, I have found the witticism to hold true for IB maths with its equations and models especially.  Too often, I have witnessed a student […]

How to Make Perfect IGCSE Notes

The art of note-taking, or at least of taking effective notes, is often underestimated. Yes, almost all of us make them in lessons, but it’s easy to forget how valuable they can be later on. Making awesome notes for your IGCSEs is especially important, as there is so much information across the 6 subjects, which […]

How to Improve Your Memory for IGCSE Success

“If I had a better memory, all this work would be no problem”. Does this thought sound familiar? Does it creep up on you before a test? Day to day in school? Many of us tell ourselves that we’ve just got a bad memory and that there’s nothing we can do about it, but more […]

How to Not Fall Behind in Your IGCSEs

We all know how it feels. We’re sitting in a lesson. We’re following what the teacher is saying. But there’s something that we just can’t get our head around. We try to reread what we’ve written in our notes. We think it through and… blank. It’s just not making sense. By the time we focus […]

Can I Study Whilst Asleep?

IB students worldwide know the pain of getting less than enough sleep day after day because of studying into the late night. During some of these late nights you must have pondered, “Is there any way of me learning all this while sleeping?” You might have heard rumours that ‘listening to vocabulary while asleep will […]

What is the BEST Music for Studying?

You may have heard of the supposed ‘Mozart Effect’, claiming that listening to classical music, or specifically Mozart, will make you smarter. Over the last years many studies seem to have debunked this myth, saying that if you hate Mozart then listening to Mozart won’t do anything for you! While some researchers claim that all […]

50 CAS Project Ideas!

One of the scariest parts of CAS may be the CAS project. Common questions we hear at Lanterna are ‘what is it?’, ‘how do I do it?’, and ‘what are good examples of projects?’. We’ll answer those questions in this article. It’s essential to understand the requirements of the CAS project before diving in to […]
